Flint seems to always get mixed up in some sort of trouble when he goes on vacation. If he’s not finding brainwashed towns he’s running afoul of international terrorists across the pond. Guy can’t catch a break. At least he knows how to dress to impress no matter where he goes.
The body mold uses one of the great later 90s figures, Battle Corps Duke. It’s nicely nondescript and fits the character well. I’d say that this mold could work for a re-do of any number of early Joe figures. The bulkier builds that were released later in the line look a bit out of place next to many ’82-84 figures, but a little creative head swapping and repainting could have given us revisits of the original thirteen Joes. But back to the matter at hand; I’m just glad the club didn’t go with Flint’s original mold again, as it had become tiresome after two modern releases in 2004 and 2005.
The unique camo pattern against the bright green is what draws me to this figure. The green is a little too light to mesh perfectly with Action Force’s Z-Force unit, but despite that, I can see the resemblance. It makes sense considering that Flint is in the UK. He’s even got a patch of red with the insignia on his beret.
Flint wouldn’t be complete without a shotgun, and he’s got one here. He’s also carrying Outback’s iconic H&K with sling, a cool weapon to see in a new color.
